Social Work Spotlight, Kristen Licciardo and Christyn Levy


"Heads Up" and "Talk It Out" are weekly virtual concurrent groups. Heads Up is for teens between the ages of 14-17 who are working through emotional, mental health or substance use challenges.

Talk It Out provides support, education and resources to their parents and guardians. In the Heads Up group, teens will learn to develop strategies and tools to manage stress and weather life's inevitable challenges. Together with other young people, they will learn about successful, sustainable recovery and resilience and how to bend but not break when anxieties arise.

Parents and guardians are encouraged to join the concurrent Talk It Out session. Parents will discuss ideas on how to help their teen live their healthiest, fullest lives in the aftermath of trauma or through times of emotional distress. Guest speakers will offer parents ideas on how to discuss tough issues and offer tips on how to break communications barriers with their teens.

Both programs utilize the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration's Eight Dimensions of Wellness model: emotional, spiritual, intellectual, physical, environmental, financial, occupational, social, and emotional. Each dimension takes into account not only physical health, but all the factors that contribute to a person’s overall wellness, which can affect overall quality of life. Sessions will feature guest speakers and participants are welcome to drop in any time, weekly attendance is not required.

These confidential sessions will be held via Zoom for Telehealth. Groups will be held each Thursday from 6 to 7 p.m. Join us!

For more information or to get the access code to join the groups, contact Anna Davis (703-383-8404) or David Edelman (703-481-4008).

Attention Seniors!



Dear parents of seniors,
Out of an abundance of caution, FCPS is directing that Senior Portraits be taken in clothing that the student wears to the photo session and NOT shared garments supplied by the photographer (drapes, tuxedo jackets, etc.). Lifetouch is aware of this requirement and will be practicing all health and safety protocols when scheduling the photo appointments.

Students are expected to dress appropriately for their photos and should follow dress code guidelines of the Students Rights and Responsibilities which states that clothing should fit, be neat and clean, and conform to standards of good taste, and decency. Clothing that exposes private areas or an excessive amount of bare skin is prohibited. Examples of prohibited clothing include, but are not limited to: sagging or low-cut pants, tube or halter tops, clothing with
inappropriate language or that represents any form of illegal substances, clothing constructed of see through materials, and head coverings unless required for religious or medical purposes.

We appreciate everyone’s efforts as the health and safety of our students and staff remains our utmost priority.

Please see the flyer below for additional details.
